Kym Marsh has spoken of her terror at stripping off on stage for a raunchy scene as part of a new Fatal Attraction production.

She told the Sunday Mirror’s Notebook: ‘Oh I’m terrified, absolutely terrified. I’ve been fortunate enough to have been in the acting game for a long time now and this is something I’ve never actually done – it’s going to be a challenge in itself.

‘But I think once I’ve done it once it will be done. And it’s not real! It’s just another side to the part I’m playing.’  

She added to The Sun: ‘Nobody needs to see this body right now.  I’m 45, I’ve had four children and I’ve not had an easy year with my fitness — it had to go on the back burner.’

Kym continued: ‘There is one particularly racy scene, and I must admit that’s a bit daunting. I’ve never had to do intimate scenes like that, so this is all a very new thing for me.

‘I just need to feel confident doing it, so I’m working hard at the gym to try to get in shape.’ 

The former Hear’Say singer explained that she was nervous for the racier scenes in the film as she’s baring more flesh than she ever has on stage before.

Kym revealed her husband Scott Ratcliffe is comfortable with her sharing the racy scenes with Oliver. 

She explained Scott feels safe in their relationship so he’s supportive of her work and focuses on making her feel confident.

Written by James Deardon, the play opened at the Theatre Royal in Brighton this week and is based on the classic 1987 hit film of the same name.

The plot of fatal attraction follows Kym’s character Alex Forrest, originally played by Glenn Close, as she seeks revenge on her married former lover Dan Gallagher.  

Eight-time Oscar nominee Glenn famously played the disturbed publishing company editor opposite Michael Douglas’ Manhattan attorney Dan Gallagher in Fatal Attraction.

The critically-acclaimed erotic psychological thriller amassed $320.1M at the global box office (from a $14M budget) as well as six Oscar nominations, including best picture.

The one-time pop star played Michelle Connor on the ITV soap for 13 years and, when asked if she would go back, she told the Sunday Mirror: ‘Yeah, possibly. I love Coronation Street – it’s where I started and it gave me the biggest part of my career.

‘I had wonderful times there, I made wonderful friends and I loved the character of Michelle, so I have no doubt I’ll go back at some point – as long as they don’t kill me off off-screen.’
